  • Hayaka is the 2nd tower in the game to have an attack that inflicts knockback, Cassy being the first.
  • Hayaka is the first tower to have a release skin.
    • They also are the first tower to release along with an Event.
  • Inferring from the 2021/2022 New Years Mail, Mayla appears to dislike Hayaka, and her clan all together.
  • There is a statue of Hayaka in the City map.
    • This statue was added before Hayaka was released to the game.
  • Hayaka's Void Ice skin is the only skin to use the same upgrade logos as the default skin.
  • Hayaka was originally meant to be an ice cat skin, but the developers decided that it would be better suited as a tower itself.


  • Embrittlement cannot freeze Massive Voids or Void Lords, but it can still apply its debuff to them.
  • Hayaka is a really strong powerhouse in the late game when she can constantly applies slow and knockback to enemies.
  • Due to Embrittlement giving additive bonus damage per hit, towers with high fire rates like Sergeant and Gunner are recommended.
  • Keep in mind that when Hayaka shoots, she shoots out multiple shards, allowing her to deal thousands of damage if multiple shards hit.
  • Due to her shards being able to pierce through multiple enemies, placing her near straight lines can allow her to fully maximize her pierce and damage output.
    • This is especially useful early game to prevent losing lives or worse, losing the game.
